Learn about the night guard and mouth guard options from Aurum Group®/Space Maintainers – Pacific Northwest™.

You’ve just spent a great deal of time and effort on a wonderful new smile for your patient.

The final result is superb. The patient is ecstatic. There’s only one challenge left. Think about what 600 pounds of grinding force per square inch (10 times the force registered during normal mastication) from a bruxing patient could do to your cosmetic dentistry. That’s enough force to crack a walnut and easily damage the smile you have taken such care in creating.
